Former New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson is not giving up on his dream to play in the NFL again. Johnson went on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Tuesday to discuss his future and lessons learned in his first media appearance since spending a week in a Florida jail.
Johnson violated probation that stemmed from a domestic dispute with his former wife, Evelyn Lozada. Johnson showed up in court not expecting jail time. But the judge didn’t like the pat on the butt Johnson gave his lawyer and ordered Johnson to serve 30 days. That sentence was reduced to one week after Johnson apologized.
Chances appear slim that Johnson, 35, will get another shot this season. But the best Johnson can do is show that he’s matured and hope for one more call from an NFL team.
